Blue Fund pupil Tegan’s second year at ch

Friday 01 May 2020

Thanks to the generosity of Blue Fund donors, Tegan joined Christ’s Hospital in September 2018. Now in her second year, she is having fun taking part in the opportunities on offer, and achieving academically. Like the rest of CH pupils, Tegan has started her Summer Term working from home with support from her teachers and House Parent. She had this to say about her time at CH so far:

“I think one of the most special things about being at Christ’s Hospital so far is boarding and friends you make. We are all so close and we all become like a big family. It’s really nice as everyone is always there for you. When I came back to school after the summer holidays I had a massive hit of home sickness, but people in my house helped make me feel better. We went to breakfast together and we talked about what would be happening that day and it really helped me and I am so grateful to have them.

In October we went on a trip to France and it was so fun and incredible to see the things we saw, like the Bayeux Tapestry. Another thing I’ve enjoyed this year are house nights because we always do weird things like a fashion show but we have to use bin bags! I’ve also really liked being able to take part in sports that I wouldn’t have been able to do in my primary school. I’ve always liked sports but I’ve put a lot of effort in this year and it’s one of the activities I’ve enjoyed the most.

My best achievement so far this year has been my grades. I never really pushed myself academically before I came to CH, and the grades I’ve achieved here have made me feel really proud of myself!

Next year we get to choose which subjects we want to take and I’m really looking forward to exploring new subjects and getting stuck in to the subjects I want to learn about.”
